Experience the Magic of Bioluminescence in Your Own Way -Take a Private Tour!

With the recent changes in tourism and social distancing, we have opened up a whole new line of private bioluminescence tours just for you! Guests can choose from any of our bioluminescence tours, including the popular Clear Kayak Bioluminescent Tour and get their own private guide away from the other groups.

Clear Kayaking Tour BK Adventure Florida

Clear Bottom Kayaking

This is the #1 selling bioluminescence tour for a good reason.  There is something mystical about getting out on the water and seeing the neon glow of bioluminescence light up all around you. Look down through the bottom of your boat, and you will see tiny sparks of light like a galaxy jetting beneath you! This tour often sells out in summer, so book early.

Sunset Bioluminescence

If you are looking for the perfect romantic date, this is for you! Launch your kayak as the sun is going down. Paddle our famous Indian River Lagoon to see manatees, dolphins, and many shorebirds. As the sun sets, get your camera ready for amazing views. Then stop for a break (bring your snack if you’d like – or propose with some champagne!), and after the sun goes down, head out for bioluminescence.

Rafting Bioluminescence Cocoa Beachcocoa beach cocoa beachtour

Family Rafting Bioluminescence Tour

This one is a hit with young and old alike. We love the family raft tour because it doesn’t take a lot of thinking, coordination, or paddling skills. Get into the boat, and your guide shows you the splendors of the neon nighttime waters. We ask that there are at least 2 able paddlers on the boat, because it needs some power, but this is good for those who might not feel comfortable kayaking. The rafts are very stable and big – seats 8 people.

Bioluminescent Kayaking Tour

This tour is usually done in tandem kayaks, but the private tour is perfect for those who want their only single kayak. Be sure to request that when you are booking. If you book online, you can email us the request. This is our classic bioluminescence tour, and the one that is done most in bioluminescent waters around the world! Head out with your guide and see why Florida truly has the world’s best bioluminescence.

Who Are Private Tours Right For? 

Private tours are best for groups of 2-6 people who are together, or a family, who does not want to be with the public groups for bioluminescence tours. The Sunset and Bioluminescence Tour is also great for a romantic date. If you are a photographer trying to capture bioluminescence with your camera, this would also be a good choice for you.

Choose the one that is right for you, we’ll do the rest!

FAQ

Our tours rarely cancel due to weather.  If it is raining the day of the tour, chances are, with Florida weather, it will clear up by the time your tour starts.  Sometimes we will hold the tour by 30 minutes for the weather to clear.  In the case of lightning, high winds, or some other reason that we cannot paddle, we will re-schedule all guests to the very next tour available, or at a convenient time for you.  Rainchecks are valid for 1 year.

We recommend you do the "Sunset Tour" if you have time.  That way you get to see dolphins, and possibly manatees and all the amazing birds.  Then, take a break, and go out for the Bioluminescent Kayak Tour later.  It's just $20 more and it's an amazing tour! Click here to book that.

For our single kayaks, the weight limit is 275 lbs.  For the tandem kayaks it is 550 lbs. The night kayaking tours are done on tandem kayaks.

Some people are naturally athletic, and they pick up any kind of activity easily.  If that's you, pick either launch location.  If you are a beginner, or not sure about kayaking abilities, or have small children, you may want to choose the Haulover Canal kayaking location.  You may also want to ask about our new rafting options where you join others in the raft for an easy paddle in a big boat.

Ram, the owner, likes to say, "You bring the spray, we'll bring the mosquitos!" We cannot guarantee there will be mosquitos, but there is a 99% change there will be.  Some breezy nights have no mosquitoes. Some nights there are a lot.   The other pest is No-See-Ums.  The best way to keep them away is with Baby Oil.  So, consider slathering on a layer of Baby Oil to any exposed skin.  PLEASE BRING MOSQUITO SPRAY.

We can manage groups up to 50 people. We recommend you book weekend nights at least 45 days in advance for large groups.  Weekdays is best, as those are easier to find spaces for.  Please phone us for details, and we will be happy to get you and ALL your wonderful friends out for the tour!  See more about Group Tours here.

We like to think so, but we cannot guarantee it.  Here are the best conditions: hot weather, right after a rain storm, dark night.  Sometimes the night is dark even when the moon is supposed to be bright.  Sometimes a barely visible moon occurs on such a clear night, that even the slightest shine makes it seem bright.  So, there are many factors that make the bioluminescence more/less visible.  The BEST TIME for glowing algae (dinoflagellates) brightness is usually July to October.  But we see it all year round, and in November, we see amazing flashing comb jellies!  So, don't miss out because your vacation does not fall during the summer months.

This depends on your launch site: either Kelly Park is near Port Canaveral right off of Hwy. 528 (about 45 mins from Orlando), or in peak-season also, Haulover Canal in Titusville, Florida (1 hr; 15 mins from Orlando).  Kelly Park near Cocoa Beach is the closer launch site to Miami.

Lots of people who love kayaking with their dog have asked about this tour. We do not recommend this one for dogs, as it is a night kayaking tour. Maybe chose the manatee tour or the monkey tour instead of bioluminescent kayaking if you want to have a great experience with your favorite pooch!

Our recommended age for paddling is 5+ years old.  Each tandem kayak, has a small middle seat, that a younger child could sit in.  Price is per person regardless of age, or number in kayak.   We recommend only for small children who are able to sit still for at least 90 minutes.

Because of wildlife and environmental protection we have a limited number of kayaks we can launch at one time.  So, we use 2 person tandem kayaks in order to get all of our guests out to see the bioluminescence on the dates they want.  That does not mean you will be in a large group.  Only 8 boats go out with 2 guide boats at one time.

Because of wildlife and environmental protection we have a limited number of bicycles we can use at one time.  There will be 4-6 people on your tour, plus your guide.  Fat tire bikes are made to ride in sand and over rough terrain.  They are perfect for your wildlife beach adventure.

This tour is better for older children. All of our bikes are 26 inches.  We recommend children are 10+ and 55" tall to be able to ride the fat tire bikes.

BK Adventure's office is about 50 miles from Orlando, and just 15 minutes away from Kennedy Space Center.  Guest will meet at our Titusville office and then be driven to the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge (about 10 miles away).

Please request a tandem kayak at time of booking if you would like one.  This river is technical, and better in a smaller kayak.

Lots of people who love kayaking with their dog have asked about this tour.  We do not recommend this one for dogs.

Some people are naturally athletic, and they pick up any kind of activity easily.  If that's you, pick either launch location.  If you are a beginner, or not sure about kayaking abilities, let your guide know when at the beginning of the tour.
